A Few Favorite Rollei Faces…

paigegreen-mimi-_0022web

I often get asked what is the difference between film and digital, and so here is a collection of some of my favorite Rolleiflex (medium format film) portraits. It is not a requirement that you look serious when you are being photographed by the Rollei, but it is a requirement that you take the photo seriously. It is a beautiful camera that deserves respect and I think people feel that way… either that or they are just waiting patiently while I slowly manually focus it.
